Valdosta - A U.S. Senate candidate is setting up shop in South Georgia.

Republican Herman Cain opened his first field office in Valdosta Wednesday. He says he wants to make sure the conservative views of South Georgians aren't forgotten in Washington.

Cain's top priorities are replacing the country's current income tax laws, social security structure, and controlling government spending. "If we don't fix what I call the core issues driving our economic infrastructure, the tax code, social security, and medicare, then a lot of the other issues won't be fixed," said Cain.

Cain is from McDonough, Georgia and is C.E.O of Godfather's Pizza. He's running for the senate seat being vacated by Zell Miller.
